Safety Net Assertiveness Project (SNAP)
SNAP Groups are open to any children aged 8-13 who live in Brighton and Hove who may have been bullied in the past or who have low self-esteem. We use a variety of activities and games to teach children some basic assertiveness and confidence building skills. By providing a range of life- skills and helping children put them into practice we are helping them to keep themselves safe in the community or at school.
SNAP comment from parent:
“Jenny started off school a bit shaky, but she is much happier, It’s such a relief. She is not sitting with that group of girls and is forming other friendships, which is great. There were a couple of minor beginnings of things in the playground, but Jenny felt she could use her new skills, and was fine about it, and then they left her alone.”

Simon Kirby MP, Member of Parliament for Brighton Kemptown, recently met with Safety Net’s Participation Worker Emma Lacey to learn more about the work we’ve been dong with 8-13 year old children from across the city on issues that affect their safety.
Simon said: “There is absolutely no place for bullying behaviour of any sort in our society and that is why I was delighted to come and show my support for the wonderful campaign being run by Safety Net to help children learn how to deal with and avoid bullying.”
